I've had the book Simply Charming for a long time. In looking at the inside cover I see it was published in 2011. I bought it right away when it was published and never got around to making any of the quilts. Thanks to Kathy and Darlene starting a Simply Charming club I finally made not one but two quilts from this book. Here's the first one Grannie's Scrap Box. It was the first quilt in the book and I liked Darlene's so that's the one I decided to make. My quilt is totally scrappy and I love it. I have lots of scraps so I'm going to do the quilts from this book using my scraps. I hand quilted it which adds a nice charm to my scrappy quilt.
Here's some close-ups of some very cute fabrics:
Cute little Bunny Hill bunny.
Love the umbrella. Fabric line: Apple Jack
Had to use this cute little Boston dog.
I'm using it on my sewing room table. It's nice for putting my phone on and a couple baskets of fun sewing things.
I could have stopped there cause I made my one quilt but I didn't. I wanted a small quilt to use for St. Patrick's Day decorating. I like to decorate with my quilts for the holidays. This quilt is from the pattern Nellie's Nine Patch. I did my chain in white which I think looks pretty good. Instead of doing the extra row I kept mine square. I just liked it better being even with three nine-patches on each end. I hand quilted this one too. Fun and sewed up really fast.
Thanks for visiting. I'm going to go link up with Kindred Quilts now.
